Saturday June 20th Vendor List

Special Father’s Day Fun
Great Grilling by Guest Chef Greg Hallihan
Grilling demonstration and menu ideas – beet slaw yum!

If you are thinking about something special on the menu for Dad
the market is the place to shop. This is the biggest selection of locally grown products in Sonoma County.

Cherries and apricots are on their way out. Pluots are on their way in.

The market is full of lovely lettuces. Armstrong Valley Farm has something new – it is a cross between a leaf lettuce and a romain (cos) type of lettuce. Pictured here.

In the food court:

The Green Grocer farm to table fare. And some would argue the home of the best BLT on the planet.
